Talks held: Membership working to make second mortgage signing from Chelsea


Reading is reportedly in talks on a loan deal for Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater after he also signed Baba Rahman on a temporary contract with the Blues this summer.

Drinkwater is the championship team’s next target and negotiations are underway to bring the former Leicester City ace to a loan deal where Chelsea would still be paying most of his salary, according to Reading Chronicle.

Chelsea fans could almost forget that Drinkwater is even their player, as the 31-year-old has barely appeared for the club since joining and has instead been loaned out three times.

Drinkwater has played for Aston Villa, Burnley and Turkish side Kasimpasa, but hasn’t done much to impress with those teams either.

It is sad to see how Drinkwater’s career has stalled in this way after his great performances as a Leicester player when he played a key role in the breathtaking 2015/16 Foxes title win in the Premier League.

Chelsea fans will hope that Drinkwater may be able to get back to his best with a team like Reading so they can finally sack him permanently.
